BOSTON (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox have a lot of money to spend at
this year’s winter meetings.

General manager Ben Cherington isn’t sure that’s the way to go.

Cherington said on Saturday that there is more than one way to
rebuild after last year’s 93-loss season. The Red Sox have a lot of
money to spend after shipping Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and
Josh Beckett and more than $250 million in salaries to the Los
Angeles Dodgers. But this year’s winter meetings aren’t expected to
be a high-priced player bazaar like previous years.

Cherington made the comments at the team’s winter fan festival
at Fenway Park.

Also Saturday, the Red Sox confirmed the signing of outfielder
Jonny Gomes to a two-year deal.
